- 2 pounds firm, not overripe pears, sliced ¼-inch thick
- 4 cups water
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 160°F. Mix lemon juice and 4 cups of water. Soak pear slices for 10 minutes in lemon water, remove and place on paper towels to absorb water. Arrange pear slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a single layer.
- Place pears in the oven for 3 hours and check for desired doneness. When ready, remove pears from the oven and allow them to cool. Put in airtight containers and store.
- Dehydrated pears will last 30 days, or longer if frozen.
